Thomas Piketty is Director of Studies at L'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and Professor at the Paris School of Economics. He is the author of Capital in the Twenty-First Century.
In a work that is aligned with but antecedent to his grand
synthesis, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, French
economist Piketty examines the structural causes of inequality... A
discussion worth having and a book worth reading.--Kirkus Reviews
Piketty's The Economics of Inequality is an excellent book and a great companion to Capital. This book is a remarkable mix of extensive data, attention to theory, and concern for policy.--Axel Gosseries, Fund for Scientific Research (FRS-FNRS) and University of Louvain (UCL)
Piketty's The Economics of Inequality, which acts as a primer, provides a useful starting point for a wide audience.--Tom Healy"Irish Times" (09/05/2015)
